Commissioner Smith thanks community
November 7, 2011
By Ron Smith
Boundary County Board of Commissioners
I take this opportunity to thank all those in this community who’ve
supported me during all the elections in which
I’ve been a Boundary County candidate, both as
sheriff and, for 16 years, as county commissioner.
I have been gratified to serve the great people
of the best county in the world.
Many of you encouraged me to continue my latest
campaign as a write-in candidate, but after
giving it much thought I let the October 9
deadline pass without filing.
Throughout my tenure as an elected public
servant, I have enjoyed considerable support
across party lines, from Republicans, Democrats
and Independents. I feel I still have that
support, which wasn’t reflected in May because
of the rules imposed.
It has been an honor and privilege to serve you
as an elected official and to work alongside a
great bunch of people who’ve dedicated
themselves to public service, and I’m proud of
all the accomplishments we made, working
together for the good of Boundary County.
No one individual can take credit, as everything
we do in county government is a team effort,
from conceiving great ideas and solutions to
carrying them through to completion, all the
while keeping in the forefront the people and
taxpayers we so gratefully serve.
While I’m leaving elected office, I am pursuing
different options to remain of service to
Boundary County and to continue working with and
alongside the dedicated county employees who
serve us so well. I can think of no greater
privilege than to continue being of service to
the people who call this piece of Heaven home,
and no better way to thank my many friends and
neighbors for supporting me through all these
